5 Useful Golf Drills 4 U

Let’s keep this simple!

1)     2 Ground Sticks or clubs from your bag. The purpose of these two ‘Sticks’ is to clearly delineate the ‘Longitudinal Target Line and the ‘Perpendicular Ball Location Line’. Where do we place our ball relative to our Sternum and between our feet? If we cannot take particular care of these two linear axis functions, we shall be at a disadvantage.

2)     The ‘Clubhead Path’ is a working line. There are only three (3) distinct ‘Motion Lines’ … Inside-Out, Square Square and Outside-In. Our Target line Stick will define our ‘Path’. If we so desire, we can add what we refer to as our ‘Body Foot Line Stick’.

3)     ‘Target Lever Only Drill’. This identifies our ‘Swing Lever’ behaviour. (3 Aspects)

4)     ‘Brace Lever Only Drill’. This identifies our ‘Hitting Lever’ behaviour. It provides our ‘Motive Force’ by sweeping and bending on the Back & Up Swing’. Then reflexively, in the Front or Down & Out Swing, this lever provides most of ‘The Hitting Force’ via properly applied ‘Clubhead Speed’. These are ‘Time For A Feel Drills’. (see ‘Slow Mo’)

5)     ‘The Bottom Of Swing Arc Drill’. (BOSA) It identifies the ‘Down Force Pinching Action & Point’. The Ball is in the bottom of the Circumference, so we must get back to our very important ‘Impact Fix’. Our actual ‘BOSA’ is about 2 to 5 inches in front of the ball. The ‘Smart Drill’ is to place a ‘Broken Tee or a Penny’ on the grass, in front of the ball, and hit it ‘Out Of There’! Hit the ball with your ‘Pivot Engine’! (see ‘RPM’)     

Perhaps read this again to make sure you get a grip on the fact and purpose? There are a lot more you can add to your own list! Do that!

One more point worth a mention? There are 5 wedges – #PW (48 Loft), #A (52 – Gap Wedge), a #SW with about 56 degrees of ‘Loft’ and 12 to 15 degrees of Bounce’, a #LW Lob Wedge (60 degrees and finally a #XW … Extreme Wedge with 64 degrees of Loft. The #SW Bounce is not always beneficial if the ground is very hard and bare. Hitting a ‘Skullie or Skipper’ is a negative! Moving the ‘Sweet Spot’ a little closer to your feet with the handle a bit move vertical will help! This ‘Toe Hit’ reduces the ‘Bounce’!
